hmm i have never made a cupcake cake before but i would think you could carve the cake,

hmm maybe if i was to try it i would bake three (3inch deep) 8inch round cakes, i would use two for the base part of the cupcake and slighty taper them and them i wouldnt level the third cake (leave it with a bit of a hump).... lol i dont know if that makes any sense at all

i will try to draw a picture icon_smile.gif

While I've never done it before, I'm sure I've seen one before. I believe the cake layers are just filled, stacked, carved into the desired shape, and then decorated. That's just a guess, though.

Hopefully someone will see your post and be able to give you better guidance than I have.

Good luck!

edited to add: I didn't see SJ169's post before I responded. That's a very good description!

I agree, I would make 3 or so layers(depending on height/diameter you want) and carve slightly, leave the top one domed. Good luck!

Thank you everyone. I was thinking the same way. But it is a scaring thought. LOL. I will give it a shot. I will show you next week the finished cupcake. Thank you again. icon_lol.gif
